xx Misheard lyrics.
« Thread started on: May 23rd, 2007, 4:33pm »

Dear Marj.

I felt that after many years of listening to Genesis I ought to share with you a secret that only one other person knows about. embarassed

For many years, I was convinced that there was a line in 'The return of the giant hogweed' that proclaimed that 'Mighty hogweed is a..b!tch', when it actually states, (as you all probably know) 'Mighty hogweed is avenged'.....I can only blame it on the build up of fluff on the needle and that the album was worn out. Obviously on cd/mp3 etc.... there is know way that it sounds anything other than what it is. undecided

Anybody else had a similar experiance. Please say yes!

I have too!

In Eleventh Earl of Mar, the lyric: Tell the lairds and the lords I heard instead: Turn left in the nose

My mom had also had a similar experience, the lyric Its always been Ethel from IKWIL, she initially thought was Its always been echo

You are not alone! grin

Known as the queen of misheard lyrics at my local pub quiz, I have quite a few but they're not all Genesis lyrics. The only other one I have is from the Seconds Out album. On Supper's Ready, Apocalypse in 9/8, instead of 'Pythagoras with a looking glass, reflect the full moon' I thought Phil Collins sang 'I'd like to crush you with a looking glass, reflect the full blow!' grin
Too much listening with the headphones on full blast I suppose!

I've got a friend who thought Witchy Woman by the Eagles was Ooh ooh Itchy Woman! What a gem!

I used to think Tony was singing 'I sit inside this public room' in At The Edge Of Night, meaning sitting in the bar of a pub! (Cue 'forever morning after the night before' joke...)

On the booklet of the CD reissue it's 'I sit inside this half-lit room..'

In 'A Curious Feeling', I thought Kim Beacon was singing 'we won't beat the bomb' - thinking it was Tony Banks being negative about defence.

In the booklet the line is 'where would be the fun?'

Come on everyone, you must have more funny misheard lyrics, even if they're not Genesis.
Instead of 'My world crumbles when you are not here', I thought Macy Gray was singing 'I wore goggles when you are not here'! grin grin grin Listen next time you hear it.

Neil Diamond and Barbara Streisand's 'You Don't Bring Me Flowers' boasts the line 'You hardly talk to me any more when I kung-fu the door at the end of the day. grin grin grin

The Sweet, Blockbuster; sounds like 'Does anyone know the way to the bus stop?'

Do you think I should get my ears tested? huh
